Narrative-Driven RPG ‘The Outer Worlds’ Announced for Switch

Private Division and Obsidian Entertainment announced that their narrative-driven RPG The Outer Worlds will launch on Nintendo Switch, following the October 25 release of the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC version.

In a video detailing the game coming to the Switch hardware, Senior Producer at Obsidian Entertainment Matthew Singh details what it was like working with Virtuous to get the game on Switch hardware. However, the gameplay shown is not from the Switch version of the game. During the rest of the trailer, Matthew talks about the game’s narrative choices and how it changes depending on player choice.

In The Outer Worlds, the player will take on the role of a mysterious character who happens to be lost in transit while on a colonist ship bound for the furthest edge of the galaxy. The character awakens decades later, and it’s from then on that the player will have to explore a space colony that isn’t all that safe to be in as multiple factions fight for control of it. The player can decide to choose the path they want to take, whether they want to be a hero, rebel, or even an anti-hero.

No release date for The Outer Worlds has been given at this time.
